    2003-04 Oceans Topic Affs

    If you go on planet debate and dig in the 03-04 files there are some pretty interesting finds. I was specifically intrigued in the Toxic Dredging Aff and the Sustainable Fisheries Aff. There are plenty more as well. I just thought I'd make a thread so we can discuss which Affs and Negs can be zombified and brought back into play. Post what you think.

    Capitalism Advantage

    hey people. Im in need of guidance from the forum. The affirmative my partner and I are running is OCS drilling affirmative, and we decided that we should make a Cap advantage but after a few weeks, all its turned into was cap defense and cap good. Does anyone have any ideas of how i could structure this advantage? (i don't believe it could be structured like a normal advantage). Any advice would be great!

    Hydrogen Fuel

    The PT would be along the lines of: The USFG should substantially develop Earth's by using hydrogen fuel as energy while removing unnecessary platforms (oil rigs or anything else that hurts oceans using fuel)

    SeaOrbiter

    I recently came across an article in Popular Science about a mobile oceanic lab in the works called the SeaOrbiter. I think it would make a viable aff for next year. First of all, do you guys think it would be feasible, both IRL and/or as a plan, and more importantly do you happen to have any evidence or arguments for or against it?

    Monologue Structure?

    Hey Forum! So my partner and I competed in a tournament, and we had a judge who recommended we ditch one of our advantages and put a monologue in the aff instead. My partner and I would like to try it but do not know how to structure a monologue, how to debate it or how one monologue would take up the time it took me to read one of the advantages. Any help on where to find monologue for human trafficking, how to tag it or debate would be great!!!!
  7. My kids hit a Fukushima CP with similar net benefit. They didn't save the shell and we can't find any real answers, so if someone could give me some info, that'd be great.

    Rango K

    So, I'm interested in writing a kritik about the cartoon movie Rango, that basically centers around water as the source of biopolitical control. The thesis would be that the AFF's focus on water as an ends to means can only result in the furthering of biopolitics, and the alt to accept our relationship to water as radically simple - consumption and survival, and essentially to leave the ocean the hell alone. I'd really like to do this, but as I am coming from LD and am new to CX, I'm not exactly sure what literature would fit this idea. So... literature suggestions/directions to take this?

    Studious Play

    So, there is a pirates AFF that's run by a few teams on the West Coast circuit that talks about Somalian Pirates, and a method of studious play to break down "the marketplace". If your really curious, College Prep has there AFF on the Wiki about it. Does anyone have any cites or evidence against Studious play? Please and thank you.

    Neg strat Ideas

    I'm trying to get a beg strat together for this year. I like neg arguments that are always applicable no matter to the case area. My partner and I have been thinking of an argument like this "Oceans are shared international territory and the U.S. cannot explore or develop them by itself, international cooperation is necessary" Would this be best run as a K or CP? What is your neg strat?
  12. I was wondering if someone could find a card or even an article that pertains to Bataille's Expenditure relating to the Oceans, whether it make a link argument or an alt solves argument, I want to ground my Kritik as much as I can into the topic.

    Ocean Policy Bad Cards

    Does anyone have any cards that say Ocean Policy (this years resolution) is bad/irrelevant/not important? I run a race aff which talks about disidentifying from the resolution, and we use analytics to say that the resolution is irrelevant but cards would be better..... Message for trade requests! Thx
  15. For the Buddhism K, I don't mean the economics shit on openev - I want the generic stuff with a link of desire. I have a lot of race/id pol stuff I cut that I'll trade. I'll take whatever is the easiest to understand and most applicable in LD for Psychoanalysis K.

    Ways to argue against a D&G aff

    Hello debate community, noticing that a few camps have put out nomads/pirate deleuze and guattari affs I was wondering what the best way to argue these types of cases would be. They avoid a lot of the usual neg args and even outright counter some important ones. Thank you for your help!

    Pirate Pedagogy Neg Strat

    So a few teams in my area are running this "Piratical pedagogy" aff and Idk what offcase to run. I was thinking afropessimism but I need some good link evidence or a good explanation. You can find the cites for the aff here: http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/College+Prep/Raees-Mardjuki+Aff Willling to trade for pirate specific afropess file or any other good offcase for this aff.....case is good too

    Carbon Nanotube Desalination

    There's this one team that reads a 1AC (Carbon Nanotube based Desalination) and they tend to do pretty well at tournaments. Their advantages are generic, Agriculture/Food and Economy. I end up reading generic responses to their advantages or a lame politics DA but don't have/couldn't find any legit cards or evidence against the technology. All my Environment DA's are rendered useless as they are tuned for Reverse Osmosis or other tech. As for K's, as much as I love them, the only time we ever hit them is at a super lay parent tournament so K's aren't the best strat. Can anyone direct me to evidence, arguments, or articles against carbon nanotube? I'd be willing to trade for a compiled neg for this aff. Offcase strats I HAVE TRIED AND FAILED AGAINST THIS AFF: China CP - They Permed it quite nicely, but probably could have won off it that round. OTEC CP - They have a card that says its 6 times more efficient in water production Floating Desalination Ships CP - Failed because evidence doesn't indicate cost/existence/requirement of infrastructure to distribute water from ships. Politics DA (several) - FIAT FIAT FIAT ( Parent judges seem to just love the word too) Heidegger K - It was going well, but as I said K's are frowned upon in this league Apocalyptic Rhetoric K - Same as Heidegger Biodiversity DA - Reverse Osmosis not Carbon nanotube Environment DA - Reverse Osmosis not Carbon nanotube

    Tidal Turbine Affs

    I feel like this will have the same advantages as the standard offshore drilling aff but it (sort of) solves for global warming instead of making it worse. Its easy to find lit for it but i feel like its easy to write a cp against it...
  21. Hey oh! I was wondering if someone could assist me in finding a card. I'm framing an argument that talks about the destructive nature of partisanship and was wondering if anyone had any sources or cards that can discuss the impact of American partisanship. Please and Thank You!

    OMEGA/ Algae Biofuels

    Could someone explain the difference between the OMEGA aff plan and the algae biofuels aff? Both the AFFs have cards about algae biofuels and they also both have cards about OMEGA. What is the difference? Do the cards apply to both?

    2 Free 1ACs

    Here is a link to get 2 1ACs. Good luck in Debate Ya'll! http://www.weberdebatecamp.com/
  24. We need judges! Word limit is 2400/1500. Word Count of the 1AC is definitely under 2400 I am now ready for CX! The COOLEST aff.docx
  25. I'm making an affirmative case that is only doing a policy to make things better. I really need a card saying that that is topical and it fits within its resolution.
